Counties Served in 2019-2020


Thanks to the generous support of the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundations, we are able to expand this year’s upcoming Campaign Institute to more communities in Minnesota. This year, our funding will allow us to open applications to nonprofits located in or primarily serving the Twin Cities East Metro (Dakota, Ramsey, and Washington Counties) and expand to nonprofits in 80 additional counties in Greater Minnesota.

As we have yet to be able to secure funding support for the Twin Cities West Metro, organizations located in and primarily serving Anoka, Carver, Hennepin, and Scott Counties are not eligible for this year’s cohort. We are committed to continuing to seek funding to offer the Campaign Institute to organizations in these four counties, and would value your feedback so we may share it with funders as we work to further expand this program.
